War

Mehhhhhhhhh:

Well I guess we can’t say the idea is “unoriginal”, so at least it has that going for it. *shrug*

Thoughts?  You putting this on the must-see list?

This is RAW my guys:

Nerf-N-Strike-Elite-Hail-Fire-Blaster-Gun-ToyEverything about this is epic.  They did a really good job with the special effects and editing too.

I scanned the comments and was actually surprised no one bitched about it making light of the horrors of war.  Sometimes I over estimate the butthurtedness of the internet.

Thoughts?

Did you boys not get the memo?

I muted the music in the video and put on Drake – Trophies, and it fit well.  Besides creatively directly trolling videos, I could also definitely choose and choreograph the music (it would all be rap though).

Norway-Special-ForcesIf I were running the Norwegian Army, I’d make their new motto “This shit don’t come with trophies.”.  Although, I guess every military does hand out medals which are actually like portable trophies… so maybe that motto isn’t the best choice.  I’ll workshop it some more over a morning latte + scone and possibly get back to you.

Norway looks cold.  I’ve had enough cold in my life, but if I had a private jet I’d probably touch down in Norway to blow up Tinder for a minute, have a few beers and try out the local food.

Thoughts?

hahah:

boy-scouts-bearded-kids-3Gotta make sure you don’t ND, getting tangled in the neckbeard on the draw though.

I’m actually surprised some holster company hasn’t made up a derpy neck choker holster yet.  If one of you guys is good with Kydex, there’s a free idea for you. :P

In the USA at least they have the freedom to be the tools they are:

I don’t know who I’m more disappointed in, the instructors or the students.  Both exhibit mind blowing levels of derp. Yea I agree portrait mode video is derpy as well, but at least this was documented.

Freedom Tools popped smoke and did the facebook delete maneuver to avoid the blow back.  Good call haha.  Another training company who apparently were the hosts of this group called West Texas Shooting Academy are taking the brunt of the abuse now.    Here is their official statement from the facebook page:

Ladies and gentlemen yesterday I posted a video of a training class that was held yesterday. I am catching a lot of flack for this class. I want to break this down for everyone because the information and statements that are being posted are not truthful.

Here is the situation, I own West Texas Shooting Academy. We have a shooting league that meets twice a month. Yesterday we invited Matthew Bennett the lead instructor from Freedom Tools to conduct a room clearing drill. I made a mistake, I never watched, or went through a class with them. I do not teach any military, or tactical training, only basics, and fundamentals. The video is part of the drill that that Matthew was teaching. This was his class, West Texas Shooting Academy was finished with our portion of the scheduled training for the day. The reason they “Freedom Tools” were there, was so we “West Texas Shooting Academy” could observe one of their classes, in hopes of working with them. Obviously this is not going to happen. We will not have them back for any other classes. Again, I take responsibility for inviting them to do a demo class. We are a great school and resource for anyone wanting training on safety, basics, and fundamentals. I stand by that statement as tall as i can!

If you feel the need to comment, or bash anyone for this particular class, please address the company and instructor that were in charge of the instruction.

I appreciate the fact the owner of the hosting company is getting out in front of this.  As an owner of something though it’s kind of your responsibility to make sure if it has your name attached to it you’re happy with the association.  Shitty he didn’t do any due diligence.

Freedom-Tools-TrainingThe original poster of the video on Facebook is Brooke Adams, who as you can see by the comments if you click through that link is absolutely shitting a brick over the entire situation (rightfully so).  What I do find priceless though is that she has some sort of affiliation with Jason Pike (Trident Tactical Solutions “Jostle king” / “Forward of the muzzle prince”), who if you remember from the top posts from the last two days is hardly a shining beacon of safety either.  haha if you’re into facebook maybe call her out on that.

Thoughts?  Would Charlie’s Angels pose with buddies at a Freedom Tools course once they re-surface?

Shout outs to my dude HighCapacityTV for the re-upload.

The shells were manufactured in 1943 and still work!

How it’s done:

The Coffman starter uses a specially made 4 gauge paper shell with an electric primer. It is filled with .25″ and .187″ diameter cordite pellets for slow burning powder. The shell fires into a starter assembly on the accessory case of the engine, same position as an electric starter. It DOES NOT fire directly into a cylinder of the engine. The gasses force a piston inside the starter assembly forward towards the engine collapsing spiral gears on top of each other converting it into a circular motion. This engages the starter dog and rotates the starter gear. After the piston reaches the end of its travel a valve released the residual pressure and a die spring resets the whole process.

Wow that’s really cool.  I really want to read more about war planes and other vehicles someday… such interesting history.

Wildcat-Plane-Shotgun-StartSuch an awesome / timeless design.

Thoughts?  Any of you guys thinking of modifying your Honda Civics to take a shotgun start? :P Now that I know about this method, I feel like turning a key or pushing a button is so lame.
